Like lots of people have already said, I've just added an extra field to 
"creator" however Martin's point is well made: authors are not 
normalised across records - meaning the same [identical] name is listed 
for each record it appears in.

This is, perhaps, something to feed into the EPrints 3.4 or 4.0 roadmap?
